Jerry Remy to return to Red Sox broadcasting on NESN in 2014
Red Sox color analyst Jerry Remy will return to the NESN booth in 2014 after not broadcasting a Sox game from mid-August through the end of the 2013 season.
Remy has not appeared on NESN since his son, Jared, allegedly murdered his 27-year-old girlfriend Jennifer Martel.
“I’m sure there will be people out there who will be very upset with me, and I’m sure there will be people that are happy I’m coming back,” Jerry Remy told reporters Monday. “I have no way to predict right now what the response is going to be. I know one thing, I work for very smart people here at NESN and with the Red Sox. If the response is overwhelmingly negative, they’ll take care of it.”
Remy initially had no intention of returning to broadcasting following the news of his son’s arrest and as graphic details of Martel’s death emerged.
